pitch black run

I have only ran once in the dark before. I thought I was going to trip on every step. Fortunately I didn't.

Yesterday morning I headed out for a run @ 6:30 in the dark, but I came prepared with an LED headlight. Aaaaah, I can see! Did an easy 4 miles. Upon finishing the run, the natural light started to arrive and the atmosphere was pink! It was totally surreal!

Then this morning I hopped onto the trainer @ 7AM and spun for an hour. It was easier this time than Saturday.

Finally I went to the pool @ lunch today. We did:

400 WU
10 x 150 on 3:00
4 x 50

The 10 x 150 was harder than it looks since I haven't been putting up much yardage lately. I will probably end up with a whopping 10K yards this entire month. Still, I am in MUCH better swimming shape now than I was this time last year.


  1. Great workouts!

    I love my headlamp. I don't use it often, but every once in a while I will go out for a midnight run to clear my head. I like to pretend I am a spy zipping down the streets and around the corners under the cover of dark (Yes, I am dork). I think it makes me run faster though sometimes :).

  2. Love early morning runs .. the pink sky is so pretty :)
